3 things to consider when buying a new garage door

Here at ABi Garage Door Barnsley, we feel that a garage door can provide a much-needed bit of elegance to your home’s exterior. It’s an extremely large and visible part of your home, taking up around a third of the front, so it’s extremely important to choose the perfect one, as it will be there for years to come.

To help you out and save the hassle, the team have provided you with a few things to consider when buying a new garage door for your home.


When it comes to purchasing anything, the cost should be a huge contributing factor, and it should be the same for your garage door. But the main thing to keep in mind is that you should buy best garage door that you can afford – don’t try to save a couple of hundred pounds and get a lower-quality garage door. Not only will you pay more in terms of repairs and services, but on energy bills as well, as the better the garage door, the more insulation it offers.


Garage doors now come in a wide range of different materials, from aluminium to steel and wood. Each material has their own benefits, and all come at a different price, so it is important that you are clear what you need from your garage door before purchasing.

If you’re wanting to enhance and maintain style, a wooden garage door will be the best for you, but security levels are nowhere near as high as those made from aluminium or steel.

Type of door

There are many different types of garage doors available to you here at ABi Garage Doors Ltd, one such as a roller garage door or a sectional garage door – both great in terms of aesthetics and security.
